Great way to unwind after a long hike

It was a little crowded but the hot side of the pool was spacious and didn't have too many people in it. Definitely worth it after a long hike at Goose Creek Falls.

We had been driving all day and needed a place to camp. We saw the sign and pulled in to a pleasant surprise. Zims offers a good soak. However, the facilities are tired and have not been updated in years. The campground has covered tables, but the tables a rickety and need some work. The water is nice and hot... More

We stopped here unexpectedly when our trip was taking longer than expected. While the place was quite rustic and the pool was not very clean, the hot springs were well worth those facts.

As previous reviews have noted, the owner/operator is not a 'charmer', but he sure does a great job of maintaining an excellent facility! I would recommend Zims for anyone or family looking for a clean, well run, relaxing soak for a small price ($7.50/body).

The campground has no trees and thousands of holes from rodents. There are covered shelters to eat under. The valley is beautiful! The campground is surrounded by mountains and meadows. The pools are ok. The smaller one is the hottest. The deep end of the big pool is kinda dark looking and not sure if it is algae or the... More

I have been to several hot springs! This one is semi rustic! There is 2 pools! One is hot the other is a swim pool in the 90's! Wish they had a deeper hot pool with benches but it was ok. It has been family owned since the 70's. The family member I spoke to had a great since of... More

Driving by, we saw Zim's Hot Springs sign. What a delightful surprise. Pulled our RV into the grassy meadow with water and electrical and once we were settled in, walked over to have a soak. Totally enjoyed our day and night here and will be back for sure. Loved the big pool and the rustic lodge that housed a cozy... More

My family and I go to zims a lot. We have a lot of fun. The big pool is cooler than the little one. It is also deep. You can buy snacks and drinks from al. And the prices a very reasonable.

Entrance fee is $6.50 for adults. I don't know if they have a different price for children. Zims Hot Springs has two pools. The smaller one was about 108-109 degrees, although we were told it was 103 degrees. There is no way it was 13 degrees. It was so hot that you couldn't stay in it for more than a... More

Zims is in a beautiful part of the Meadows valley. It is an old aging place but well maintained, clean and alcohol free. It is place where your children are safe and can enjoy the soak along with the adults. Lockers available bathing suits required
